V for Vendetta
Publication history[edit] When the publishers cancelled Warrior in 1985 (with two completed issues unpublished due to the cancellation), several companies attempted to convince Moore and Lloyd to let them publish and complete the story. In 1988, DC Comics published a ten-issue series that reprinted the Warrior stories in colour, then continued the series to completion. The first new material appeared in issue No. 7, which included the unpublished episodes that would have appeared in Warrior No. 27 and No. 28. Tony Weare drew one chapter ("Vincent") and contributed additional art to two others ("Valerie" and "The Vacation"); Steve Whitaker and Siobhan Dodds worked as colourists on the entire series. Background[edit] David Lloyd's paintings for V for Vendetta in Warrior originally appeared in black-and-white.

The 6 Most WTF Protesters Ever Photographed We've covered badass protesters like these before, but their way of protesting injustice -- repeatedly swinging their giant testicles into hypocrisy like a pair of fleshy wrecking balls until the whole damn system comes tumbling down -- is not the only way. Peaceful movements can be quite effective too. Reason, logic and empathy are all equally excellent tools of opposition, if employed correctly. And hey, if all that shit fails, you can always try complete and utter madness. #6. "Welp. Nobody sings the blues like a black man. This particular image is of a South Korean soccer fan after his team lost to Switzerland in the 2006 World Cup. And he's right. #5. Jesus. Nope: It's the dog. Are they fleeing together from an unseen enemy, or is Riot Dog just about to fuck up a brother with poor color coordination skills? Keen observers will note that, holy shit, that's the same Gas Mask Guy from the last article! A riot dog has been seen in every single riot in Greece for over a decade now. #4.

Alan Moore : une impressionnante biographie illustrée Une légende vivante aux airs de mage, tel il se présente à nous. La couverture, illustrée par le talentueux Frank Quitely, le montre en barbu ténébreux, sur le modèle de l’autoportrait de Léonard de Vinci. Les photos de José Villarubia lui rendent un aspect plus gothique, les bagouses lui envahissant les phalanges, et une allure quasi-christique. La plupart des portraits que font de lui les dessinateurs insistent sur cette image de Merlin pétri de spiritualité, entouré d’arbres séphirotiques, tout droit sorti d’un Camelot situé à cent kilomètres de Londres au centre de l’Angleterre, où serait détenu, protégé par mille et uns sortilèges, le Saint-Graal du scénario. Les ébouriffants dessins de John Totleben pour Miracle Man. Moore arrive à obtenir le meilleur de chacun de ses dessinateurs. The Swamp Thing revisitée par Moore, Bissette et Totleben. Là se forgent ses premières amitiés, ses premières alliances, ses premières convictions. Les croquis de mise en place du scénario de From Hell.

Waiting for Godot Plot[edit] Act I[edit] Estragon soon dozes off, but, after rousing him, Vladimir is not interested in hearing about Estragon's dreams—another recurring motif. Estragon wants to hear an old joke, which Vladimir starts but cannot finish, as he is urgently compelled to rush off and urinate due to a kidney ailment that pains him whenever he laughs. Estragon next suggests that they hang themselves, but they abandon the idea when their strategy seems infeasible. Estragon asks what Godot is going to do for them once he arrives, but "Oh ... nothing very definite" is the best that Vladimir can manage.[7] When Estragon declares that he is hungry, Vladimir provides a carrot (among a collection of turnips), at which Estragon idly gnaws, loudly reiterating their boredom. Vladimir and Estragon begin to reflect on the encounter, with Vladimir suspecting that they have met Pozzo and Lucky before.

The Great Gatsby Fitzgerald—inspired by the parties he had attended while visiting Long Island's north shore—began planning the novel in 1923, desiring to produce, in his words, "something new—something extraordinary and beautiful and simple and intricately patterned."[3] Progress was slow, with Fitzgerald completing his first draft following a move to the French Riviera in 1924. His editor, Maxwell Perkins, felt the book was too vague and convinced the author to revise over the next winter. Fitzgerald was ambivalent about the book's title, at various times wishing to re-title the novel Trimalchio in West Egg. First published by Scribner's in April 1925, The Great Gatsby received mixed reviews and sold poorly; in its first year, the book sold only 20,000 copies. Historical context[edit] Set on the prosperous Long Island of 1922, The Great Gatsby provides a critical social history of America during the Roaring Twenties within its narrative.
